Normally I do not write articles containing anecdotes, as they rarely pertain directly to investment, but my recent experience might give a pretty good idea why AMD's (NASDAQ: AMD ) financial performance is such a mess. I have three "modern" systems, as I'm too lazy to go upstairs and downstairs just to use a PC. One of my upstairs computers was an old PC based on an Intel (NASDAQ: INTC ) Pentium E2160, running Windows XP. Over the winter, I upgraded it, quite... The last few weeks I have gone back to using my downstairs machine, which I built last year based on an A6-5200 (Jaguar), running Windows 8. 1. I purposely avoided the slower and more bloated Windows 7 and Vista, but still find the experience of... Despite the age of the processor, and being dual-core, it runs great, and is very responsive. Both Intel and AMD are in a market where performance from older processors is more than good enough for the vast majority of users. Although other form factors, like tablets and smartphones, delay purchases as well, adequate performance from older machines is also why the market is shrinking. It is also the main reason why Intel and AMD focus so much on performance per watt, and laptops.
A SCOT has been accused of stealing more than £700,000 worth of rare Faberge antiques during a raid on an auction house in London. Richard Tobin appeared in court in London today but when asked to confirm his name said he was Lee Harvey Oswald – the man accused of assassinating John F Kennedy. The 45-year-old allegedly stole jewellery and trinkets made by the famous court of jewellers of Imperial Russia from Christie's auction house in London. Despite the bizarre rant, Judge Alistair McCreath said the case could proceed, telling the court: "The gentleman has informed us that he is Lee Harvey Oswald, but I don't think that's right somehow. Tobin, of no fixed abode, allegedly broke into Christie's in London on Sunday December 7 last year and stole opulent jewellery and carvings made by the famous jewellers. He allegedly swiped a three coloured, jewelled gold Faberge clock, worth £125,000 and made in St Petersburg, Russia in 1899. It is also alleged he took a Faberge Jasmine flower silver gilt, worth £550,000, a gold and silver aquamarine necklace...
